Atop the tall tower, in the midst of an isle of madness, sits the maddest mouse of them all: the Chess Master. The Seasonal Garden and the Tower answer to his whims, changing with his mercurial moods. Behind his glowing white eyes lies the mind which produced the rage of the Technic King, and the cold brutality of the Mystic Queen. The Chess Master has the potential to create anything- but he is more likely to destroy everything.
Mouse ID#: 278

Preferred Cheese

Chess Master mice have been found to be especially attracted to Checkmate cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.

Hunting Strategy

The weaknesses of the Chess Master mouse differ slightly from most others in the Wizard's Pieces group. Tactical weapons are very effective against it, while all others are ineffective. It is only available to attract after either the Mystic King or Technic King mice have been caught with either Checkmate Cheese or a Stalemate Charm.

Upon capturing a Chess Master mouse, the hunter is automatically transported back to the Seasonal Garden unless they are using a Stalemate Charm. By using a Stalemate Charm a hunter is able to remain in Zugzwang's Tower and attempt to capture additional mice, including attempting to capture the Chess Master again.
